Are you in a long distance relationship? When I talk to my friends who have been in or are in one, they say that it is really tough. When you are dating someone, you want to be with them and spend a lot of time with them, but when you are in a long distance relationship, you only get to see your boo thang every once in a while. Here are some tips for my ladies who are strolling down the “long distance relationship” road.

  1. Forget the haters. Those people that tell you your relationship will never work? Don’t pay them any attention. Surround yourself with people who will bring you up and support you and help you through the times that you are missing your boy so bad it hurts.4f60dbba30514.preview-300
  2. Plan phone/Skype dates. Communication is important in any relationship, but even more so in long distance relationships. Make plans for a Skype date, like a time and day. Dress up, put on some makeup, do your hair, and act like you are really going on a date. Talk about any and everything with them.
  3. Have a life. What I mean is, don’t sit around the house and mope about missing your boy toy, and don’t not go out and have fun because you think that you can’t because you have a boyfriend. Trust is big, so trust your guy to be able to go out with his friends and have a good time. At the same time, he needs to trust YOU too.

You can do it, ladies! As my boy Hunter Hayes would say “Love don’t know what distance is.” You got this.

Welcome to the office of love dr. Chelsea! If you watched my  YouTube vid, then you know it is all about my love life (of lack thereof). Well, since I am such an expert on love (okay, maybe not an expert) I thought that I would give you all some friendly relationship advice. Relationships are tough, so a little advice wouldn’t hurt!

  1. Stay independent. When you are in a relationship, it is really easy to want to spend every waking minute with that person. Resist that temptation! I am not saying that it is bad to spend time with them, but everyone knows that girl that blows off all of her friends for her boyfriend, and that is totally not healthy! Doing your own thing every once in a while ad44d43ed81591320331ae17024066d8leads to a healthier relationship.
  2. Don’t try to be perfect, just be honest. Just be yourself when you are with your man candy! He knows that you aren’t perfect, so don’t try to be! Trying to be perfect for him can be exhausting, and it doesn’t show him who you really are.
  3. Don’t take yourself too seriously. This kind of goes with the last one, but I thought it deserved its own category. If you try and take yourself too seriously, then you keep yourself from having fun! Joke around, have tickle fights, just do fun stuff! But also, when the time is right, you can be serious. Joking around can be great, but sometimes you have to take things seriously.
  4. Keep your boundaries clear. When you are up front about your boundaries and morals, it makes dating much easier because they know exactly what you are about! Keep it Christ centered J

The picture I used in this article shows you how joking around can be fun. Love can be a blast, you just gotta have some tips on how to navigate through the waters. Hang on ladies, it can be a bumpy ride!

XOXO, Chels

Being friends with your ex can be a really great thing. It can also be a really hard thing to achieve! Here are a few pointers to help you become friends with your ex.

1. Make sure that you tow are really interested in being just friends. If you want to start a friendship with an ex with hopes of getting back together, then you are not ready to be friends. Take some time to really think about if you are really ready to be just friends. An easy way to see if you are ready is to ask yourself how you would feel if you heard that your ex was dating someone new. If the thought makes you mad or insanely jealous, then you are not ready!chelsea crockett ex

2. Don’t rush. You may be eager to see your ex again, but keep in mind that you may still have feelings for them and feel emotionally tied to them. Wait to begin a friendship until your emotional feelings have lessened.

3. When you finally do start to hang out with your ex, dress appropriately. You want to look good in front of your ex, but you also don’t want to send the wrong message! Also, when you do meet with your ex, do so in a public place so that you can avoid awkward moments alone!

Like I said, being friends with your ex can be good! You just need to know the right way to go about it.

XOXO, Chels
